1 January 2015:

The lab is now officially part of CINPLA. This is a new consortium in Oslo aiming to link experimental and computational neuroscience and bringing together neuroscience, computational physics and nano electronics labs.

‘Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) is a platform for an integrated experimental, computational, and theoretical approach to address neural plasticity at multiple levels. Our scientific goal is to identify and characterize molecular, cellular, and network contributions to plasticity, and to develop computational and theoretical tools to understand these processes on multiple scales. We will achieve this by integrating experimental biology and computational modelling through collaborative PhD projects that promote interdisciplinary interactions. Further, we will develop a creative and inspiring consortium which aims to deliver groundbreaking research and develop an interdisciplinary and high-quality educational program in Neuroscience. CINPLA is a strategic research initiative at the MN Faculty at UiO’.
